I am from Geneva, but I would not recommend Geneva for its Christmas Market in Bastions Park or Quai Général-Guisan. It is a fairly new event, has no old tradition (to bew honest, I don't think any of the Xmas markets in Switzerland date back to the Middle Ages like the one in Strasburg, France). Shopholders at the Geneva Market come from elsewhere, well it's your decision but now you have been warned.
I don't know the other Chrismas Markets in Switzerland, there was none in Zurich when I used to live there in the 1980s.
Oh, there is one traditional market, that's the Onion Market in Bern (Zibelemärit), this year it will be on 29 November. Too early for you, maybe.
In Carouge, which I may refer to as Geneva's Greenwich Village, there will be a Cristmas market under a new concept, on December 13-15. It's too early to describe what it will be about.
